Danny Murphy also had his say on the Paul Pogba debate and whether a Premier League team should snap him up for £8million.

Gabby Agbonlahor has said he would take him at Aston Villa, but former Liverpool star Murphy says signing Pogba is a big risk for any club due to his recent injury record.

“I personally wouldn’t [want him at his club],” Murphy told talkSPORT.

“His talent is unquestionable, some of the things he can do on the football pitch is just what I love to watch, his vision, his quality of passing, his skill set – he’s got everything and we’ve seen the best of him.

“But, for me, he would be a liability moving forward because he doesn’t seem to be able to stay on the pitch, and that is it for me.

“I certainly wouldn’t be investing a huge chunk of my club’s budget on his wages. It’s a huge risk.

“I wouldn’t be risking that much money on a player who’s never on the pitch.

“He’s struggled with injuries, mentally he’s been through the mill and there’s a debate about whether he has the motivation.”
